Fighting game character design 11 by Jiggeh Fighting game character design 11 by Jiggeh
Name: Norton
Origin: USA
Fighting style: Karate
Design notes: Hulk Hogan + Chuck Norris + Mr. Karate = profit? This design is the culmination of a handful of different ideas. The first idea I had was basically "karate cowboy", which seemed appropriately silly for an American character. And aside from cowboys nothing seems more American than Hulk Hogan, so why not. The well-worn Hong Kong movie trope of western martial arts champions being henchmen also inspired me to subvert the All-American hero archetype and make him a villain instead (which is kind of where the Mr. Karate inspiration comes in). I reckon he would make a good right-hand man to whatever the final boss may be... but since he or she doesn't exist yet, for now this guy is the boss. I guess the "real" boss would be unveiled in the sequel =P

A very high concept design.  It's both familiar and has a twist to it.  Very nice! ;)

Ya know what I just thought on who the "boss" of your game should be, I think he should be a Mongolian; like an heir to the throne of the conqueror Genghis Khan! never... EVER... have been a true spirited Mongolian fighter in a fighting game and you almost don't hear didily squat from Mongolia! :nod: :nod: also, for another suggestion, develop a fighter from Canada. Canadians are just as strong and tenacious as anyone else maybe even more so than Norton there! No offense!
